The English teacher, Catalina, just emailed me to let me know that she's set up a meeting with the Rio Blanco school board, which consists of the Spanish teacher, Elizabeth, the dairy farmer's wife, Adriana, and one parent per child. She told them that it would be nice for everyone to meet me since I'm now a permanent fixture in the classroom. They all seemed to have agreed. She did not tell them that I will be presenting them with money that my family and friends contributed to my fundraising efforts. I look forward to their reaction and I hope I can be part of the decision-making process of where the money should go. Finishing the kitchen is first priority, but if there's money left over, there are many other things it can go towards.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
